Dear Stata-listers,

I'm using Stata 8 and Stat/Stransfer 6. Any one help me to run
Stat/Stransfer from Stata Command to transfer, for exp. I want to transfer
C:\Data\data.xls to C:\Data\data.dta.
Use the -stcmd- package, downloadable from SSC. The -stcmd- package contains 3 programs, -stcmd-, -inputst- and -outputst-. If you install the -stcmd- package, and type in Stata

stcmd c:\data\data.xls c:\data\data.dta /o /y

then StatTransfer will copy c:\data\data.xls to c:\data\data.dta. Alternatively, you can type

inputst c:\data\data.xls

and StatTransfer will copy c:\data\data.xls into the memory. You can then type

save c:\data\data.dta, replace

and Stata will save the data in memory to the disk file c:\data\data.xls c:\data\data.dta.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Roger
